NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WRDW) -- The manager of an Augusta bar is accused of sexually assaulting a woman early Sunday morning.
The victim says 32-year-old Frank Colafrancesco came into the Playground Bar on Saturday night and got drunk, saying he was having problems with a new girlfriend.
She says Colafrancesco was too drunk to drive home, so she offered to drive him to his home in North Augusta.
She claims that when she helped him get inside, he forced himself on her, saying he would tie her up with rope if she did not comply.
The victim says the incident went on for over two hours and that she tried to leave multiple times, but he would grab her by her hair and pull her back. During the altercation, the victim says Colafrancesco also grabbed her around the neck and left bite marks on her arms.
When the victim was able to leave, she drove home and called 911.
Colafrancesco is charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct and kidnapping.
